TEDxNirmaUniversity is an independently organised event at Nirma University, Ahmedabad, under the global TED franchise. It is a thriving colloquium of ideas, inspirations and intellectual exchanges that shares the same spirit as TED, of ‘Ideas worth spreading’. It is a day long event featuring eminent speakers from various walks of life who deliver talks, that provide varied landscapes of creative collisions, but all resonate with the ultimate goal – the power of their ideas to change attitudes, lives and ultimately, the world.
IKIGAI is a Japanese word that translates to – ‘The reason to wake up every morning and the reason for finding joy and happiness.’ IKIGAI is the intersection of three concepts – your values, things you like to do and things you are good at. If you have found your IKIGAI, you have found your mission, passion and a sense of meaning in your life.
Our theme for this year’s TEDxNirmaUniversity – “What’s your IKIGAI?” also focuses to reiterate the same beliefs and values, through the vision of it’s speakers. Our speakers have stories to tell, that reflect their mission and passion for what they are doing, and their reason for waking up and looking forward to a new day and new beginning. They will add to each other’s strengths and create a clearinghouse of ideas that will bolster their IKIGAI, but more importantly, by the end of the day, help you answer- “What’s Your IKIGAI?”
